Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Homer20 Not the same as the original!
I purchased these springs thinking I would save a few bucks over the other hardware box store. I matched up the color to the existing springs and even weighed my garage door just to make sure I got the right size (88lbs). When I installed these springs, I noticed they were thinner than the ones I was replacing, but same light blue blue color. Once installed, I tested the door and it about destroyed it.
I went to the other hardware box store, picked up their 90lbs, light blue springs and they were an identical match to the original. I installed them and the door functioned the way it was supposed to. If you do use these, I would just be careful with these and try to match size and not so much the color.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vern Qualifying the right spring for your door
Having a single door with 110 lbs on it when I purchased the house. They never looked as if they were matched to the door. So when one reached its lifespan and broke, I decided to replace with like strength. Had problems from the start with the door reversing, not going down all the way, and flailed cables. Return them for 90 lb springs that, by appearance and size wise fit better. In other words, they match the door. By the way, the originals never had safety cables. Unit ran smoother, however, would not rise above 16 inches. One can get pretty frustrated by this point, Final resolution adjusted the torque on the back of the opener itself one knotch. works great.
Point being, if you get frustrated quickly, hire someone.
Now, who does the counting of cycle to determine when 10,000 cycles are up???
